Berserk is a frozen viking village created for the third DLC in Black Ops 3 called Descent.
Watch the preview of the grand scale of this new map Berserk ready to hit the PlayStation 4 on the 12th of July.
From the short preview alone it looks like a very interesting map with a mixture of wide open spaces along with tight rooms for close combat. We will have to wait and see on the 12th just as to how well this new map plays out but at this first quick glance it looks like it is going to be a winner.
The name Berserk itself comes from an ancient Norse warrior who was called a berserker who fought with wild, uncontrolled ferocity—he went berserk. The name came from an old Scandinavian word, berserkr, which probably meant ‘bear coat’ or ‘bearskin’, a suitably rugged garment for a terrifyingly unhinged Viking.
For a viking themed map the name choice is brilliant as the fighting in Call Of Duty is usually set in a fast pace environment. So if the name is anything to go by this map could well play very fast.
